April "Talking Points"

It is our pleasure to offer Talking Points, a monthly newsletter from the Office for Multicultural Affairs. The purpose of Talking Points is to keep the Calvin community, and our stakeholders, abreast of the activities of the Office for Multicultural Affairs and to provide “talking points” about the campus’ progress toward becoming a campus that is anti-racist, multicultural, accountable, and reconciling.
